Qliedtke writes: “I put these cabinets in my shop and I am in love with them.  There’s nothing like an organized shop.  Building them was very simple, and mounting the wall cabinets was easy.  The quality of these cabinets is the best part: All of the corners are protected with metal guards, and there’s a highly durable coating on the Melamine — Coleman calls it “WorkShield” — and they use high quality hinges and draw slides.  I couldn’t be happier with them.  I now smile every time I enter my shop.”

These come in quite a variety of pieces ranging from a wall cabinet to large storage cabinets and a workbench with a hutch.

I’ve always been a bit wary of these type of cabinets, as I wonder how well they’d hold up to abuse.  Not that I really abuse my cabinets, but I do tend to bump into the doors pretty regularly, and — in the cabinets especially — I tend to store some nasty stuff in them from time to time, like chemicals and such.  We have a metal cabinet in the Toolmonger shop for that purpose.

Of course, Qliedtke seems to have had a good experience with ’em.  Has anyone had a set of this type for a few years?

Street pricing starts around $60 for the small cabinet and ranges up to around $200 for the largest cabinets.  Packages are available; right now Froogle locates a 6-piece set for around $490.

    I had these in my last house and they worked very well. Pretty good value if you don’t want to step up to the better steel stuff.

    I would like to purchase one of these cabinets. They were exclusively made for Lowes with the Coleman label on them. Coleman said they are discontinued. Does anyone know where I might buy one in California?

    I purchased a Tuff Duty garage cabinet that worked out very well in my former home. When we moved, I disassembled the unit and have never been able to find the hardware to do the reassembly. Are assembly packages available to be purchased separately. I really would like to be able to use the cabinet again.
    Thanks for any guidance you might be able to give on this dilemma.
